Jubilee had to change their location to Afraha after it emerged that NASA had already booked Uhuru Park for its final rally.

IEBC had issued a stern warning against politicians extending their campaigns past 6pm on Saturday.

“The Committee’s mandate remains valid until after the swearing-in of a president. The Commission will not hesitate to take action on anyone who violates the code of conduct during this period, IEBC Chairman Wafula Chebukati stated.

“We will summon any candidate in breach of the code of conduct and frame charges. We will conduct a hearing and public if found culpable,” he added.
